LOS ANGELES, Sept. 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Ultra-luxe Crystal Cruises is offering two new four-day overland adventures that intimately explore the unique natural beauty and history of South Australia's picturesque outback and 170 year-old wine country.  During Crystal Serenity's February 7 Sydney to Singapore voyage, guests can venture to Kangaroo Island, considered the Galapagos of Australia, or delve into the Flinders Ranges National Park & Barossa Valley wine country.

Departing from Adelaide and concluding in Perth, both overland trips allow plenty of time to sightsee in both cities, as well as enjoy the region's indigenous wildlife. Highlights include:

  • Kangaroo Island: An eco-friendly, luxury cliffside lodge serving organic cuisine, plus scouting the bush for wallabies, koalas, fur seals, and sea lions.
  • The Flinders Ranges & Barossa Valley: Winery tours/tasting in Clare and Barossa Valleys, a traditional Aussie barbeque, and emus, eagles, and kangaroos with Australia's largest mountain range as backdrop.

Prices for each Crystal Adventure start at $3,861 and $4,029 respectively, per person, double occupancy.  

The complete itinerary sails from Sydney to Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth/Fremantle, Bali, Semarang, and Singapore, giving a grand tour of major Australian cities and less-visited Crystal ports, with other new excursions offered en route.  

Guests who book a verandah stateroom by October 31 receive $600 per couple additional savings.  2-for-1 fares for the 19-day cruise start at $11,910/person (double occupancy), including free air from 24 North American cities (or air credit), airport transfers, and $1,000/person "As You Wish" shipboard credit.  

Crystal's passion for creating exclusive, eye-opening luxury shore-side experiences are cornerstones of its Crystal Adventures program, earning the line top ratings for two decades.
